Many of our students pursue university and Saskatchewan Polytechnic training along with a basic understanding of various trades and skills.

Mount Royal offers a safe, caring and culturally inclusive learning environment and build positive relationships with all students. We are proud of our culturally diverse student population that includes First Nation, Inuit and Métis youth in addition to many new Canadian students from around the world. We truly believe that our diversity is our strength and 0ur goal is to help students develop independent thinking, self-confidence and a sense of social responsibility as they discover their own strengths and talents.

We recognize that students have a natural curiosity and need for relevance and meaning in what they are studying. Connecting their learning experiences in a meaningful way is crucial in keeping students engaged and active learners. To foster student engagement, we equip students with the necessary skills to plan and assess their own learning and provide an integrated curriculum that balances academics (with emphasis on literacy and numeracy), artistic, practical and applied arts and career education. The curriculum prepares students for their future and teaches about human values including respect, honesty, trust, determination and responsibility.

Career education and service projects both within the school and community foster qualities that will help students be successful citizens. All Mount Royal students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities and outdoor educational opportunities, which teach them to meet new physical and social challenges.
